    My nickname should most definitely be NYX (the

    Greek Goddess of the Night). I love everything about the night and always have since I was a child. I feel most comforted when the day has come to an end. Interestingly, it doesn't bring me peace in the sense of having my thoughts slow down. My mind seems to be more productive...

    There’s something special about the late

    nights. I can concentrate so much better after nightfall, opposed to during the day. It’s almost as if I’m at my most energetic during the final hours of the day. Which is a strange thing, as it should be the opposite. It’s as if my internal clock is set a few hours after...

    I rarely sleep more than 4-5 hours.

    I often hear we need more than that but I don't believe it. Besides, that's what napping is for.

    There is something about the silence of the

    night that wakes us up. If you are in love, the night times are the most difficult. Because then your senses are heightened. You feel more and you feel your heart pound for it. Whatever you are passionate about, it comes heaviest at night. Maybe it is the moon, drawing your...

    "The night is for passion.

    It’s for fanaticism, romance and trouble. It’s when your most tender, authentic and suppressed sides come out to play under the nonjudgmental eyes of the stars."

    I love staying up late at night,

    even on the weekdays because that's the only time when I can do things I want and not get bothered by anyone else at home.

    At 2am I went for a walk in the rain

    because I couldn't sleep and this creepy man came up to me and asked if I wanted candy. Did he think I was 8 or is he just that stupid? Of corse I'm not going to want ******* candy from a sketchy man in the dead of night. Bruh

    Urgh.. What's worse than staying up all

    night; is the fact that you struggle and fight just to fall asleep, only to toss and turn for the next 4/5 hours and wake up at the tiniest noise!! and then not being able to get back to sleep.... Hmm :/ stupid brain!!!!

    I often question as to

    why my body decides to become a slug at day and a cat by night, lol. I do enjoy the night, watching movies chilling around. Maybe it's the most enjoyable time of clock due to less havoc in life. Being an independent contractor I can get away with it I suppose. I don't stay up...

    I avoid sleep. I can feel tired,

    but I push it away. There is always more I can do, there are feelings I don't wish to relive in a dream. The morning only brings unpleasant parts of my day.

    most of the time it's cause I just can't sleep... And I like night time... But then I have to get up sooo early the next day and it really screws me up... I get about 2-5 hours of sleep a night on average... I used to wake up early and go to bed early... But that phase comes...

    I Wanted To Be A Nurse....

    Well I went to college to be a nurse. It was a huge dream and I really wanted it so much. I ended up becoming a CNA and taking care of the elderly which is very hard work but yet very rewarding. I spent 4yrs taking care of our moms/dads and grandparents. I formed many bonds...

    i like to sleep during the day

    and be up at night :P. the night time makes me feel more comfortable and not only that, most people sleep (or so it seems). it sometimes helps me relax when i know it's going to be night. there's just a silence there that can't be present during the day, i'm not exactly sure...

    Status update: it is 2:48.

    The owl perches once again. It would not be a big deal if the owl didn't have class in the morning. The owl lays in a nest of strategically arranged blankets that sit precisely to her liking. She types away at her dying laptop Is it worth it to get up and get the charger...
